We visited Lebanese Taverna with children while visiting Virginia and we liked it very much. Food is delicious, service is great and the atmosphere is cosy and pleasent. Highly recomend it for family dinner.

We had a large group of 15 and they accommodated us nicely. We got their sampler meal which was a lot of food and everyone was stuffed. Delicious though.

Although still quite delicious, this location is not quite as good as Lebanese Taverna's Connecticut Ave location in Woodley Park. The food is, mostly, the same. You can tell their recipes are identical, it's just a difference in chefs/preparation. My family loves the hommus and chicken kebab. Their homemade lemonade at this location was substantially different, which was strange. Nonetheless,... More

My family and I have been eating here since it's inception. I ate here 3 times this past month, two were solo. The service is always friendly and the atmosphere is relaxing. I always order either the chicken or lamb kabobs. Lately the lamb is cooked very tender but I'm not a fan of the sauce so I order it... More

A very pleasant atmosphere for unique, delicious cuisine. My daughter and I visited at Happy Hour and took advantage of special prices on the house wine. We each had one of the sampler plates, both of which were very good. The staff was friendly and efficient.

I liked the lentil spinach soup and chickpeas kibbeh while my friends enjoyed meat/lamb/chicken. Nice view at the skating ring as well.

I've eaten recently both at the Pentagon City location and at the new eatery at Reagan National Airport (middle bay of gates) and have been pleased with both meals. The menu at the full service restaurants is the standard Lebanese/Middle Eastern fare, service is great, and the food is always consistent, and I've been visiting one or another of their... More

I live in the area and end up eating at Lebanese Taverna several times a year and am never disappointed. During my recent visit we shared the Fatayer appetizer and then both had the Taverna platter, me with chicken and my boyfriend with lamb. We were both very happy with our meals - it's a lot of food on the... More

Excellent, friendly service. The waitress carefully and clearly described the various dishes, including the wonderful chefs platter consisting of nine samples of the best tasting items available in larger portions. We had the baked salmon and lamb stew entres. Filling and delicious. Excellent wine list.

We were a group of 20 ppl invited for dinner , had yummy food with excellent service and very friendly staff. Freshly baked Arabic bread is one of the best secrets , great fresh drinks with an.Arabic twist. Make sure to try the white coffee at the end of your meal.
